welcome back to "worldwide exchange." i am courtney reagan with dom shoe having a fun morning time for must reads, stories catching our attention my pick is in "the washington post," titled americans deserve better than the gop agenda we are offering a better deal. democratic congresswoman employees employees outlines a new democratic agenda called, quote, a better deal, better yobs, better wages, better future the plan is to create 10 million good paying full-time jobs in the next five years. second, crackdown on monday p lees and meshrgers that hurt consumers and lower the cost of prescription drugs she says special interests are given special treatment while hard working americans are ignored. working people from the heartland to the cities are struggling in a rigged economy and system is stacked against them goes on to say it is an ambitious economic agenda, represents a renewed democratic
5:46 am
commitment to hard working men and women across the united states left out, left behind for too long at least understand the plan, regardless if you agree or not struck me as trumpian. >> it is the minority report, republican administration, republican congress, and one of the democrats, putting their jockeying position for mid terms next year. this is about trying to get set up in the public eye for all this stuff to happen of course, that is one we have to watch my pick is in usa today, titled sean spicer's choice, boost donald trump brand or rebuild his own. you remember when this happened. late last week, who thought hey, what's he going to do. this speaks to this whole idea this is alicia shepherd writing
5:47 am
no more uncomfortable questions about whether his job is safe, sean spicer's, parading his lack of credibility or struggling to get his story straight, no more compromising conditions, no more conflicting timelines, dashing behind white house shrubbery to avoid cameras. this is very tilted towards the left side of the equation. sean spicer was a very public face for much of the trump administration policies, and for some people out there, trying to figure out what his next step will be. he had a formidable position within the republican national committee before the trump administration, so what is he going to do to follow it up. that's one of the big questions. >> this was a huge story friday when the information came out late morning then heard from anthony scaramucci, part of the reason for him to resign. make an already chaotic press situation worse. that was sean spicer's opinion

5:51 am
trading. future side, we saw marginal weakness before. still holds. a little better now. s & p down by four points. dow off by 36. it was 44 earlier. and nasdaq off by 10 points as well let's get into what's happening with the markets we have been hammering home the idea we have 180 s&p 500 companies, a busy week for earnings season. you're going to be very busy a lot of micro economic company specific data opposed to what's happening macro. what do you have your eyes on. earnings reports or that economic data? >> really is both. initial part of earnings season tells us what is to come these types should probably sum up end of the day that earnings have risen about 10% second quarter. first half of the year was 12%
5:52 am
growth rate. that means the full year will be close to 10% year for earnings this is major support under the market question is 2018, then it becomes a macro one. to what extent will monetary policy tighten policy can't tighten forever without causing difficulty how much trouble will central banks give us. inflation outlook has been benign that gives them more time. but they're planning in terms of the balance sheet in the u.s., and what we're expectingin terms of cutting back on bond purchases in europe generated this foreign exchange volatility which is effecting european markets now. that's a bit on the aggressive side there's probably room for policy to adjust to financial mashlgts and economy because of low inflation. >> one thing it didn't mention is oil, price of oil fell sharply friday today we have an open he can meeting. equities are paying attention to the oil market >> yes.
5:53 am
>> how much would you be paying attention today to what comes out of opec and oil, how should we factor that into earnings and economic data? >> this is a bigger focus for me than a lot of others we are in a range on the oil price, not creating credit market locations, not seeing petro oriented portfolios, dumb pgs other assets on the market i think it is not a disruptive factor globally but it is important. one of the factors that drove up earnings sharply and industrial for 1 q. headed into lower or hiding trading range is important. >> a lot of views what could take this market down. you talk about the macro side, maybe central bank actions is there anything from central bank standpoint, going to have a fed meeting this week, you mention them tapering, winding down the balance sheet a bit
5:54 am
